    I went to the doctor because I was coughing, sneezing, stuffed sinuses and ears, had aches in my joints and muscles, fever, cold sweats, all the makings of a really good time, lol.

    I am currently taking Oseltamivir and it has helped to relieve my symptoms tremendously. I have not experienced one head ache before or after taking this medication. I only have experienced fever and coughing with phlegm throughout this flu.

    I cant speak to the effectiveness of this drug since I will be discontinuing its use. It gave me an awful headache both times I took it and caused me to vomit excessively after about an hour or two.

    This was prescribed for my daughter after an influenza A rapid test read positive. Since she is not yet able to swallow pills due to age, they produced a suspension. I was skeptical about Tamiflu in the first place - usually when studies are at odds or have shown placebo to be more effective, I generally assume treatment is not the real goal (it's money & if you pay for it, you'll ag ...
